    while these republican senators write legislation to fight against the illegal fishing operations of China, and its attempt thru imports to destroy the last independent food producers in our country, in the house congressman Pallone is doing what he does best to “help” the commercial fishing industry, writing letters. This has been Pallone’s answer to everything, he writes a letter, and the fishermen feel good for a moment, until they realize that there is never any follow through from Pallone, he has an abysmal track record when it comes to writing legislation, he doesn’t. he signs onto others bills as a cosponsor, but rarely writes his own, and if he did the bill goes no where. He is the nowhere man of congress, grow some balls, and really help your constituents, write a companion piece to the republican legislation and lets get some bipartisan support in both houses.

    That would make your mother my cousin, and Gosta’s father Ernest would be her uncle. Sounds like we’re related. Nice to meet you, Jim
